How to make converted EXCEL column to be numeric instead of text

I’m using Aspose PDF for converting PDF document to Excel spreadsheet. When converting, how to make one or more columns in the output to be numeric instead of text? The content of the column(s) is numeric only already in the PDF. After conversion, it’s all converted to text only.


Could you please attach your input PDF, problematic and expected output Excel files here for testing? We will investigate the issue and provide you more information on it.

Ok. Please see the attached. DetailReportBySiteForAccountsRpt_20220412113338896.7z (20.2 KB)
